Gift guide: 20 amazing memoirs and biographies for the avid reader in your life

Now that Christmas is nearly here, we're making a list and checking it twice.

Namely, because we have to figure out what to get our nearest and dearest this holiday season - seriously, we really need to start to start our holiday shopping this year...

Books are one of those gifts that make Christmas shopping so much easier.

After all, there's something for everyone whether you prefer crime fiction or romance novels - or anything in-between.

And while we'll always have a soft spot in our hearts for fiction books, there's something about a good memoir that always manages to draw us in almost immediately.

They dig deep into the stories that other people want to share and, really, deliver an emotional impact like no other.

So, if you've got a bookworm on your Christmas list this year (or are looking for ideas to add to your own Christmas wishlist), we have rounded up 20 of the best memoirs and biographies in 2019.
